I McHunt Alex Ferguson calls BBC Radio 5 Live (audio)
That Chapman reads the tweet from I McHunt before a live studio audience watching the show at the BBC’s Philharmonic Studio in Salford, Manchester, did not reduce its punch.
As Chapman says:
Cue laughter and a standing ovation lasting a full minute.
Chapman apologises for falling for “the oldest one in the book“. It was a cunning plot that duped not only Chapman but the researchers who found it on twitter and the show’s producers.
The I McHunt Alex Ferguson line has attracted not a single complaint to the BBC.
